Faith Health Initiative (FHI) exists to support multi-denominational bodies of faith as they seek to promote wellness within their congregations. FHI provides health screenings, resources and educational support that will enhance a church’s existing health ministry. FHI also works with congregations that desire to develop a health ministry of their own through training and mentorship.
Faith Health Initiative actions are rooted in three basic premises:
- We are stewards of our bodies and are responsible for their care and keeping as a spiritual act of worship.
Romans 12: 1-2 (NIV), “Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God-this is your spiritual act of worship.”
- Our body was miraculously created by God and has the innate ability to maintain health.
- The majority of chronic disease is caused by lifestyle choices and therefore may be prevented. (Source: CDC)
Faith Health Initiative serves bodies of faith by providing faith-based education and services that promote holistic wellness.
